Weekend Getaway: See What’s Jammin’

Last weekend we had the chance to go away on a much needed long weekend to one of our favorite getaway locations: Lancaster, Pennsylvania.

Since I have been little we have been making an annual, sometimes semi-annual, pilgrimage to the land of the Amish and shoofly pie.

One of our go-to locations has been Kitchen Kettle Village in Intercourse, Pennsylvania.

We love Yummie. Lily was a little unsure of him.

Situated along about two blocks, Kitchen Kettle is an adorable village that features a variety of shops carrying everything from Brighton jewelry, specialty meats and cheeses, cowboy boots, kitchen gadgets and more.

Our favorite place in the village is called The Jam & Relish Kitchen.

Get to jammin’.

There is no way to be confused as to what is sold in this store. The name says it all.

Anything that can be jammed, picked, marinated and jarred could be found inside of this delicious business.

Jars as far as the eye can see.

One of the best perks of the store is that you can taste it before you buy it. Free samples of everything from salsa to pickles to the Pennsylvania Dutch delicacy, Chow Chow can be spread on a provided cracker, tortilla chip or poked with a toothpick.

Hot pepper jelly is my absolute favorite. I made sure that I stocked up!

Prices are reasonable and you can get a variety of sizes in everything from a “I just want a little taste” size to “I gotta have it by the truckload” size.

Even Lily enjoyed sharing with Daddy!

If you have the opportunity to visit Kitchen Kettle I highly recommend stopping by. If you can’t make it out, you can also shop online.
